A distressing incident was reported at Cottonpet in Bengaluru where, a labourer from West Bengal, Sabdul Haq (25), was duped by an auto driver who pretended to offer him a ride and ended up extorting 25,000 rupees.

The incident occurred on the 19th of August, around 6:45 in the evening. Sabdul Haq, after finishing his work, was heading to BVK Iyengar Road to purchase vegetables. At that time, an unknown auto driver approached him and offered a ride. Sabdul Haq mentioned that he needed to go to KR Market, and the auto driver agreed to take him there.
